The AFF Board has approved the introduction of a revised AFF Selection Policy, to take effect from 12 March 2017.

The revised Policy makes a significant structural change to the existing Policy, with the provisions common to all age categories now consolidated into a single section so as to reduce duplication. 

Some of the key changes to the substantive provisions of the policy include:

1) the amendment of the selection criteria for Asian Zone Championships to provide for equality of selection as between AFT and AFS fencers;

2) the introduction of provisions clarifying the process for individual and team selection for FIE, EFC and FCA events (where no call for nominations is made);

3) the expansion of provisions regarding team selection to provide for a greater variety of team events (eg mixed ages, genders, weapons etc);

4) the introduction of provisions regarding the replacement of a selected fencer who subsequently withdraws from an event; and

5) the correction of certain anomalies in Appendix A to allow for the allocation of points where none were previously available (eg where a lower age category fencer competing in a higher age category event was previously eligible to earn points in the higher age category but not in the lower age category).

 

The AFF is seeking expressions of interest from members of the Australian fencing community who would like to be considered for future roles as team managers, accompanying Australian teams to overseas events.

The AFF is looking to expand its existing pool of experienced team managers, to ensure there are appropriate resources in place to support the increasing number of international competition tours undertaken every year. These roles are unpaid, with managers receiving reimbursement of travel and accommodation expenses and a per diem only.

Expressions of interest (including a summary of relevant experience) should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

The AFF, together with the ACT Fencing Association, is delighted to announce that Australia has been awarded the right to host the 2018 Commonwealth Senior Championships and the 2018 Commonwealth Veteran Championships in Canberra in late 2018. We look forward to working closely with the Commonwealth Fencing Federation to deliver a successful and enjoyable event!

 

The AFF invites all interested fencers to register for the following 2017 Coach Designated Tours: 

1) the Open and U/23 Mens & Womens Sabre Tour to Korea in March/April 2017, incorporating the FIE Grand Prix in Seoul; and

2) the Open and U/23 Mens & Womens Foil Tour to China in May 2017, incorporating the FIE Grand Prix event in Shanghai.

The information for the tours is separated based on Age Category and Weapon.  Please ensure that you download the one(s) that you are interested in. 

Further information for the Tours can be gained from the contacts listed in the documents.

To register, click here.  To see who is already registered, click here.  This registration facility is provided to Australian fencers for tours which are compulsory for members of the High Performance Program, but are also available for participation by non-HPP fencers.  Registrations close on Friday 17 February 2017.

Please note that if you have previously registered for these tours, you do not need to do so again.

Please also note the "Fees and Charges" information on the AFF web site (click here), in addition to the Operational Protocols on Selection (click here) and Tour Costs (click here).  As part of the registration process, you will be asked about travel insurance.  If you leave this blank, the standard tour insurance charge will apply.

In order to nominate for events that form part of the tour, you will need an FIE licence.  This is not required immediately, but you will not be able to complete your nomination unless all of the international representation pre-requisites have been competed (click here).

Athletes intending to compete in Junior or Senior World Cup events (including Grand Prix) need to note very carefully the operation of the Selection Policy (sections J4.21 - J4.23, and O4.21 - O4.23 respectively).  The Operational Protocol for other Category "E" events for cost information is also relevant (click here), as is the information relating to Team entries (click here).

Important Note: nomination for the competitions that are part of this tour is an additional process, and must be done using the overseas competition entry facility (click here).  As with the FIE licence above, event entry does not to need to be done at the time of tour nomination.
